Nudura One series variation

Recommended Posts

Agreed.  Probably trying to be too architecturally flash, for a first timer.

Thick/sturdy ICF would be much easier to build and brace - the 350 Passive looks virtually impossible to blow-out, and I'm basically just making a square box.


I'm talking to custom brick-slip firms, who can make the tricky chamfered window-surrounds, rain-ledge and other Victorian features, which the conservation officer wants me to match in the front facade of our street.  If we can do these in a slip (rather than a full thickness brick skin) I'm more likely to go with the extra thickness of ICF.

We've just built with Nudura XR35 blocks which are thicker than the standard, same width of concrete core. Probably fell in to the U-value trap when deciding on these over the standard block, but they were certainly very solid to build with and we didn't get any blow-outs.
